If you have regular sessions for your dog at top Cardiff dog grooming salon Mucky Pups you will know that the more your pet is pampered, the better tempered he is when it comes to dealing with messy coats between visits. Dogs are creatures of habit and so getting them used to being brushed and combed helps enormously when they have had a vigorous roll in some mud which has got embedded in their coat. If they don’t mind being bathed at home, you could try that, but if they object and they are too messy to wait for another appointment, you can try brushing it out.
If your dog has been recently for a session at a Chepstow dog groomer, the coat is likely to still be silky and conditioned and so the mud will come out more easily. If big clumps remain, you shouldn’t try to brush or comb them out as it will hurt your dog and make the problem worse. Break the clumps up in your fingers and if they are too big and hard, soak them with a very wet cloth or sponge which has been soaked in warm water and a little dog shampoo. Most dogs will tolerate this even if they don’t like bathing.
